Day Seven: Terra Incognita

House on the Rock, Spring Green Wisconsin

The House on the Rock may well be the ultimate in tourist traps. Tacky, chaotic, overwhelming, ridiculous and surprising- it is a collection of collections presented with little or no context. Authenticity is not a priority here, and you can check any preconceptions about aesthetics you may possess at the door.

I live pretty close to Spring Green and I finally went just last year. Yeah, it's beyond explaining! The strangest thing, to me, was just that there were dead trees left standing, inside. Although there were certainly lots and lots of strange things! It's like a dream.
